David Brazil

"2017 Poetry Books I'm Excited About"

"City Lights describes this new collection from multi-vocational poet Brazil as 'a hymnal with secular burdens,' which is both poetry in itself and more than enough to get me intrigued. Brazil is an activist and a Christian pastor, and this collection explores the intersection of class politics and Christian spirituality, two worlds that are too often seen as in conflict, when they ought to work in harmony."
